New Students

Spring 2024 Arrivals

Welcome new Midyear students!

We are so excited that you will be joining us in January!

Midyear undergraduate students (first year and transfer) will move onto campus on Sunday January 7, 2024 between 8:30am and 12:30pm. There will be lunch available in the dining halls and vouchers for families to eat with students if they'd like. The University Welcome will occur at 2:00pm and families are welcome to join their students at this. After the welcome students will say goodbye to their families and start their Orientation program. We will have a reception for families that will go until 3:30pm. If you need to arrive a day early, here is a list of local hotels.

Orientation for all midyear undergraduate students will begin the afternoon of Sunday January 7 and continue through Tuesday January 9. The first day of classes will be Wednesday January 10

Keep an eye out for emails from the Department of Orientation and First Year Experience throughout the fall semester regarding some virtual opportunities to meet each other, as well as some of our Midyear Ambassadors. In the meantime, you can feel free to reach out to our Midyear Ambassadors with any questions you have about Brandeis or their experience as Midyear students.

Looking to learn more about possible jobs/internships before you begin at Brandeis? Visit our Hiatt Career Center.

Below is a calendar with dates and deadlines of the tasks you need to complete before your arrival. Some of these are due at the same time as students who are starting in August (between May-August) so be sure to read through them carefully.  Other tasks will be due during the fall semester; some are listed below and other fall tasks will be added over the next few months.
